The time manipulation thriller Tenet got off to a good theatrical release in several countries. Despite the severely restricted operations due to the corona pandemic, director Christopher Nolan's film has already brought in more than $ 53 million in revenue. It hasn't even started in the US.
In contrast to many other production companies, Warner Bros. Pictures had decided to bring the new time manipulation thriller Tenet to cinemas despite the current corona pandemic and its effects – and not, for example, directly digital version in a video-on-demand Service. The first information on the international box office results is now available.

According to a recent report by Box Office Mojo magazine, Tenet was able to raise a total of more than 55 million dollars on its first weekend. Most of this was due to its theatrical release in the UK, where the film raked in just over $ 7.1 million. France ($ 6.7 million), Korea ($ 5.1 million) and Germany ($ 4.2 million) follow in second place. This is a considerable number for the start of a new film at a time when the cinemas are very limited. In addition, Tenet has not even started in some of the larger markets: in the USA, Russia and China, for example, it will only celebrate its premiere later this week.
Ultimately, however, it remains to be seen whether Tenet can even bring in its production costs of $ 205 million. In addition, there is a large budget for advertising. Tenet is the latest work by director Christopher Nolan, who has made a name for himself with films such as Interstellar, Inception and Batman: The Dark Knight.
